1 Timothy 4:14
Despise not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee through prophecy and with laying on of the hands of an elder.
Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
Another hot-button word in the Reformation was the Greek presbuteros, translated in the Vulgate as presbyter and by the King James Bible and other official Bibles as “bishop.” Tyndale’s use of the word “elder” is polemically anti-authoritarian, implying a more congregational church organization. In this particular passage, the King James Bible’s “presbytery” implicitly supports the church’s control over the priesthood, in which priests are ordained through the rite in which the bishop lays hands on the candidate.
